The annual Christmas in July party I host each year on this blog is happening soon.
If you've been around awhile, you may remember that each year the summer party is a little different. I try to do something special in July each year because each of us gets very busy in December and it's a fun to have a get-together when we aren't in the midst of the holiday season. This year I'd like to repeat the mini-questionnaire as a way to spark a dialogue and to have everyone get to know each other better. I was inspired to try this approach from what I saw and participated in three years ago on the website.
With their blessing, I've adapted the questionnaire to fit our needs.
We did this last year too--remember all the fun answers? Click to see the 2014 introduction again. Answer the following five questions as completely or as briefly as you like. Copy + Paste the questions below in an email, answer them, and email it back to me. Send your responses in immediately and I'll email you back with a number. That number is your confirmation that I received your answers and your place in the queue.
I will begin posting the responses starting on July 1st--and roll them out in the order received. Don't worry about photos either--I'll take care of that. And duplicate answers are part of the party experience--don't exert too much effort trying to find rare examples for your answers. If you want to change your answers after you email them to me--please resist the urge.
Instead add comments to your own post when it goes up in July. Don't spend four hours on it--just go with what comes easy. If you feel you need a little help, feel free to flip through your dog-eared copy of the encyclopedia --or put a copy on hold at your local library.
Or, use the search box or click through the archives on this website. Whether you send in a response or not, please feel free to follow along throughout the month of July.
Reading other people's responses is half the fun. I want to encourage everyone to leave comments too--it makes people feel good to know their entry is being read by others. Since I'm hosting this party, I'll be glad to be the first one to join the party and lead by example.
It also makes sense that I may have seen this more times than any other because I have every song and dance number completely memorized! I suppose I have quite a few favorite holiday musical moments. Obviously, Scrooged is up there. Carlson becomes the stingy Ebenezer Scrooge Where can I watch old Bing Crosby Christmas specials? this version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol which to me always felt forced.
Arthur isn't usually this insensitive to his employees so the change in character feels like it comes as a way to fit the story line rather than a lesson he needs to learn. It sort of ruins the episode for me.
